Got gifted a copy of Carmageddon: Reincarnation on Steam by a mate. Just hoping it doesn't need anything special to run, as I'm just on a laptop..

Well on track to reach level 50 in titanfall before the end of march, which is a featured challenge on Xbox one just now. I'm determined to do it to see if I actually get anything for these challenges :lol:

Dark Souls is like an abusive relationship.

It's horrid for so long but when things go right they are so. fucking. good.

Recently completed The Stick Of Truth. Loved every moment of it! Looking forward to playing through it again!

I'm really tempted with the South Park game but is it worth 30-40 quid?

:yes:

It's just a ballache at first because you don't have a clue what yo're doing but when you learn how to play it properly and go the right directions, get the right items, etc. It's just fantastic!

I do not.

However, having set a target for myself, and reaching it with an epic last minute performance, I feel good about managing it.

I paid the equivalent of that in AUD and loved every minute of it. It plays really nicely, it's fucking funny all the way through and the references to the series are plenty enough to please both die hard fans and casual viewers.
I wasn't even bothered by the censored bits, as they were handled in a way that didn't take me out of the experience, and even made me laugh as much as the uncensored clips did.

What?


Also, further into infamous, and its kind of OK, but its really just the same as other games in the genre, prototype immediately springs to mind, but way less challenging. This is an easy 100% and that's not a good thing. PS4 has absolutely fuck all going for it right now...

Currently only available on Windows, but I'll keep an eye on it, it looks pretty neat.

Fought another boss in infamous. This one was pretty good, but nothing special. Got a new power which seems cool but can't see it bringing the game above 7/10
